Review questions/objectives: The overall aim of this comprehensive systematic review is to explore the use of web-based interventions for increasing physical activity levels in people with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS). The quantitative objectives are to identify: * The clinical effectiveness of web-based interventions in enabling people with MS to increase their physical activity levels as evaluated by measures of physical activity. * If (short- or long-term) web-based interventions enable people with MS to achieve the physical activity levels recommended in guidelines for adults with MS.1 * If the use of web-based interventions enables people with MS to maintain recommended levels of physical activity after the intervention has ceased and at short- and long-term follow-up. The qualitative objectives are to: * Explore the experiences of people with MS using web-based interventions that aim to improve their physical activity levels. * Gain further information regarding the enablers and barriers for people with MS in the use of web-based interventions designed to increase physical activity. * Identify whether, from the perspective of people with MS, web-based interventions help them improve and sustain their physical activity levels over the short- and long-term.Our Research Report for 2000-2002 reflects an outstanding level of achievement throughout the institution and demonstrates once again our high level of commitment to strategic and applied research particularly in areas that enhance the quality of life.
